Report: Champ Caledonia Road to be sold at auction – eventually

June 01, 2018 09:49am
Seeing mares such as Songbird ($9.5 million) and Tepin ($8 million) pass through the sales ring last year cemented it for Caledonia Road's connections. According to The Thoroughbred Daily News, the champion filly will sell at auction either this or next year.

Luc Paiement, Caledonia Road's managing partner, told The TDN that, "I will not keep her as a broodmare. She is worth too much for me to keep, and I don’t want to be in the breeding business. I like to buy yearlings and I will sell them when I think the price is right."

Palament's Zoom and Fish Stable campaigns the daughter of Quality Road along with Charlie Spiring and Newtown Anner Stud.

Caledonia Road earned her 2-year-old championship by winning the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies last November at Del Mar. Having dealt with a setback, she didn't continue on the Kentucky Oaks trail this spring but returned a winner April 29 at Belmont Park. Caledonia Road is set to challenge Monomoy Girl and other division leaders June 9 in the Acorn (G1).

She was purchased for what's now looking like a bargain $140,000. According to The TDN, goals are to run this summer at Saratoga and contend for the Breeders' Cup before considering the sale.
